12 Celebrities You Didn’t Know Had Famous Fathers

You know Miley Cyrus is the daughter of Billy Ray, but you probably didn’t realize these stars had famous dads, too. Here are 12 celebrities with equally famous fathers:

Gigi & Bella Hadid

You probably know by now that Gigi and Bella’s mother is Real Housewives star, Yolanda Hadid. But did you know their father is actually Mohamad Hadid? He’s a very successful real estate developer with a net worth of around $200 million. He’s also appeared on Real Housewives, Shahs of Sunset, and Second Wives Club on E! So clearly, these model sisters were destined for the Hollywood life they have now!

EJ Johnson

After appearing on the show, Rich Kids of Beverly Hills in 2014, EJ Johnson has become quite the socialite. Known for his feminine and androgynous style, EJ joined E! News as a commentator in 2014 and has also had a recurring role on Fashion Police. EJ publically came out as gay in 2013 and his family, including his father Magic Johnson, were more than accepting!

Rashida Jones

Any guesses on who Rashida’s father is? I’ll give you a hint, they share the same last name. Rashida’s dad is highly acclaimed musician Quincy Jones. Qunicy was married to Peggy Lipton when she gave birth to Rashida Jones. The two also had another daughter, Kidada, who’s an actress as well.

Angelina Jolie

Angelina Jolie’s father is Academy Award Winner, Jon Voight. He’s been in movies like The Champ, Deliverance, Enemy of the State, and several others. Jon has won four Golden Globes — and has been nominated for 11. So….yeah, he’s a pretty big deal. Unfortunately, Angelina doesn’t have the best relationship with her father. But it’s been reported the two have been working on that!

Lily Collins

Peter Collins is one of the world’s best selling artists. Along with Paul McCarthy, he’s the second person to have sold over 100 million records worldwide as a solo artist. And guess what? He’s the father of actress, Lily Collins. You might not recognize his name but you’ll definitely recognize his voice. His most successful songs are, “In the Air Tonight” and “Another Day in Paradise.” He’s also the voice behind the lead song to the Disney film Tarzan, “You’ll Be in my Heart.”

Colin Hanks

Odds are, you’ve seen his face on the big screen but you didn’t know his name. If you did, you would’ve been able to tell who his father is. Not only does Colin Hanks share his dad’s last name but he looks just like dad. The eldest son of Tom Hanks, Colin has quite an impressive acting history. He appeared in The House Bunny, The Good Guys, Life in Pieces, and many others. He’s also worked as both a director and a producer. The apple clearly didn’t fall too far from the tree!

Elle King

American singer-songwriter, Elle King, is known for her hit song “Ex’s & Oh’s.” But did you know her father is actor Rob Schneider? I most definitely didn’t. But I can definitely see a comparison. Schneider had Elle with former model London King, in 1989.

Lily Rose Depp

Lily is the daughter of Johnny Depp and former model Vanessa Paradis, and she’s following both of her parent’s footsteps with careers in modeling and acting. Lily’s modeling career has blown up recently after appearing on the cover of British Vogue in 2016. She’s since been a part of many high profile campaigns and became the face of Chanel’s new fragrance in 2016, as well as staring in their beauty campaign in 2017. And her acting career has been just as impressive. In 2019, she will star in The King along with Robert Pattinson and Timothee Chalamet. Can’t wait for that movie to come out!

Ben Stiller

The son of Jerry Stiller, Ben has had quite a successful career in acting like his comedian father. You might not recognize the name Jerry Stiller but he played Arthur Spooner on the show, The King of Queens. You’ve seen the show, right? Well, Jerry also co-starred with his son in Zoolander, Heavyweights, Hot Pursuit, The Heartbreak Kid, and Zoolander 2.

Emma Roberts

American Horror Story actress, Emma Roberts comes from a long line of actors. Her aunt is Julia Roberts and her father is Eric Roberts, who’s been nominated for Academy and Golden Globe Awards. He’s starred in The Dark Night, National Security, and The Expendables; to name a few. Eric has been in the industry for a very long time and has starred in over 500 movies and tv shows. And Emma isn’t far behind, she’s been a household name since 2004 when her popular Nikoldean show Unfabulous aired.

Kaia Gerber

Because of Kaia Gerber’s famous mother, Cindy Crawford, you rarely hear about her father! But he’s just as famous…in a different way. Rande Gerber worked as a model but he’s currently a very successful businessman. Rande has a ton of businesses, some he shares with his best friend George Clooney (ever hear do him?) Rande’s net worth currently sits around $300 million so he’s not the only parent bringing in the big bucks!
